Happy Pronouns Day


Some thoughts:
1. Sex is determined by genes, not surgeons and drugs. There are two, but some folks have both.
2. The English language has three genders: masculine, feminine, and neuter (the he-she-it thing).
I’m fine with one wanting to be called “it” but that’s silly.
3. Inventing a word list for variations of self-identity is stupid. That’s what names are for.
Demanding that I go along with that word list is irritating BS.
Insulting me for not buying into that BS is grounds for a punch in the nose.
Requiring that I go along with that BS is outrageous, dictatorial, and without authority.
4. Trans male to female-ish is unfair in athletic events where males and females compete separately.
5. Allowing choice of restrooms and locker rooms exposes women to fake-Trans pervs.

The general discussion surrounding this topic is just another artificial brat fight.
It’s arbitrary, complex, and without any good options to satisfy all sides.

I propose the following:
Recognize three genders. If you don’t want to be a he or a she, then you’re an it.
Trans get their own athletic events, if men and women have separate events. Might even drop the drug prohibitions (kind of an ‘unlimited’ class).
Trans get their own restrooms and locker rooms, separate from genetic males and females.
Trans are required to have ID showing before & after photos.
It will no longer be considered tacky to ask for a ‘peek’ before making a pass.
Trans get two votes in any election, but they can’t chose the same candidates on both ballots.

(What? Of course it is, but it can’t be any sillier than a Pronouns Day)

    This is all very simple:

    Men are from Mars
    Women are from Venus
    All the rest are from Uranus

    What could be any less confusing?

    Well said.

    I will say I’ve been waiting for hermaphrodite-Americans to lambast the ‘choose my pronouns’ crowd for cultural appropriation.

    Can’t be a “Pronouns Day”, because if there really were such a thing, Hallmark would have made a card for it.

    It will no longer be considered tacky to ask for a ‘peek’ before making a pass.

    Fifty years ago, it was “Puff, puff, pass.” (Or research tells me.)

    dick, not quite dead white guy, just wait until next year. There will be cards and decorations at the big-box stores elbowing the HalloThanksMas stuff out of the way.
